300yrs ago the Berkshire hog was discovered by Oliver Cromwells army in Berk, England. After the war the hogs became popular amoung the upper class farmers of England because of the superior carcass and quality of meat. The 1st Berkshire's were brought to the United States in 1823. Over the past 125 yrs the Berkshire has been a major influence in the swine industry.
The Berkshire is known for it's superior meat quality and taste. It is known as the "Angus" of the pork world. Berkshires yield cuts that are well marbled, tender, juicy and highly palatable. They have been featured on such programs as Chopped, Top Chef, and Diners Drive-in and Dives from the Food Network Channel. If you ever try Berkshire pork you will not settle for anything less again.
The Berkshire also goes by the name Kurubuta, which is their Japanese name. Some of the more ritzy restaurants feature Kurubuta Pork on their menus.
